The Golden Touch : Warner Electric for capping process improvement
Warner Electric has provided magnetic headsets to many fine OEMs and users in the capping industry for over 20 years. Featuring smooth torque magnetic technology to provide the most consistent torque control on the market.
From capping carbonated soft drinks, bottled water, milk and juice, to ketchup, salad dressings, personal care products, and motor oil, reliable Warner Electric capping headsets, chucks, and anti-rotation knives have successfully improved the overall performance of capping operations around the world.
Warner Electric magnetic headsets feature constant smooth torque technology; differing with most competitor OEM headsets that have two opposing magnets causing pulsating torque. It’s the pounding effect of a pulsating clutch that increases cap tightness and torque variability during the capping process.
Success story in application
Vodka Manufacturer turns to Warner Electric for capping process improvement
A vodka manufacturer participated the World Spirits Competition in San Francisco, which ended up earning the double gold medal and the unanimous judges’ choice, beating out 72 vodkas from around the world, including flavored vodkas. After that, their handmade vodka has grown substantially, from producing 1,000 cases in 1997 to more than 200,000 cases per year.
The copper finish coating of their caps was being damaged in the capping process as the coating is somewhat delicate in nature. The chucks need to contact the closure in a way that holds the cap firmly without damaging it. To make matters worse, the existing headsets required parts that were expensive and difficult to find.
Solution of Warner Electric
Warner Electric provides magnetic capping headsets feature smooth torque magnetic technology. These headsets demonstrate improved performance over the traditional synchronous OEM headsets by eliminating pulsing, vibration, and pounding. It well eliminated damage to the closures during application, and bottles were no longer getting through the machine without a cap being installed.
The manufacturer is extremely satisfied with the results. Jamming problems and the need for maintenance during shifts were eliminated once the Warner Electric headsets were installed.
The original headsets would not run for more than a few minutes before having issues, needing adjustments or cleaning.
Smoother torque puts a new twist on bottle capping at a soda plant
The customer’s problem:
- Smaller caps are over-tightened, making it difficult to loosen the caps.
- The sudden increase in torque has a great impact on the equipment, and it is necessary to modify or replace the capping head every three to four months
- The capping head will rust after only 10 weeks
Solution of Warner Electric
- Warner magnetic capping headsets applies torque smoothly and consistently. This eliminates overtightening and reduces the variation in the amount of torque needed to unscrew the cap.
- have a visual scale on the side for setting torque, making changeovers easier and faster. They need no torque measurements, recalibration, or trial-and-error operator judgment.
- Warner’s steel headsets come with a quad seal and drain holes, resisting ozone.
